Marvel Studios has recently dropped an official trailer for the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. The trailer features plenty of high-octane action and supernatural theatrics as Dr. Stephen Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, joins other familiar cast members including Benedict Wong (Wong), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Karl Mordo), who all return to reprise their roles.
The upcoming Marvel movie will also see a few newcomers including Xochitl Gomez (America Chavez), Michael Stuhlbarg (Dr. Nicodemus West), and Elizabeth Olsen, who reprises her role as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch from other MCU productions. However, there’s also no shortage of speculation about the potential cameos of Tom Cruise and John Krasinski.
But it seems like one of those rumors is true as Patrick Stewart’s original Professor X can be heard delivering a line in the new trailer, according to Unilad. Ominous and eerie orchestral music comes in straight off the top of the teaser as the camera zeroes in on Dr. Strange’s intense eyes. “Every night I dream the same dream,” Dr. Strange narrates, “and then… the nightmare begins.” From there, the intensity builds up in increments, with the use of intensified music, sound effects, and visuals.
Meanwhile, the trailer promises to ‘enter a new dimension of Strange,’ to which the doctor admits, ‘Things just got out of hand.’ All the various characters are then seen in some form of high-flying battle and fiery backdrops, as a means to bring the trailer to its conclusion. The superhero movie is intended to be a sequel to Doctor Strange (2016) and the 28th movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is slated to hit theaters on May 6.
